Hi! Thank you for visiting Coastal Conservatory

This is a site created for anyone ready to take steps to realize a greater vision for their family.

We are the Ramm family, and we’re on a journey to achieve greater freedom together through family-run home businesses. If you would like to join us on this journey, and learn how to work from home while involving your entire family, this is the place for you!

We’re a homeschooling, home-business-running family whose mission is to pursue, as a matter of first importance, God’s design in every area of life. We haven’t always homeschooled or pursued home business, but we now strongly believe in the enormous potential for goodness of both.

Not too long ago, and for much of history, family businesses were the norm.  Usually, this took the form of an agrarian lifestyle, but family restaurants, stores, and companies were common as well. With industrialization and the institution of a public school system structured to create competent factory workers, society changed, and today it is common-place for the family to be split-up, and working separately. Today, often both parents work (for separate employers) and the kids go to school (though siblings are separate from each other in different grades). At the end of the day, these separated individuals come home and try to coexist in the same house. As a result of the separation, families are weakened. This is not a life we wanted for our family.

For five years now, we have managed to successfully grow a family home business, and while our journey is only beginning, it is our goal to work together as a family on many different business ventures.

While we are not perfect, and we still have our struggles and make mistakes, we have learned quite a lot about what it takes to run your own business from home. We want to help others who share our vision, and this blog exists to help you obtain your goal of running a family business from home.

“As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.” ― Pope John Paul II
